Welcome to St Mary’s, Thetford.

In line with current Covid19 government advice, the church has limited opening, by BOOKING ONLY.
Please do not visit the church unless you have followed the instructions
[please see below]

Important Notice

THE ONLY PUBLIC MASS AT ST. MARY’S WILL BE AT 10 AM
ON SUNDAY.
Please see the newsletter for further details.


Volunteer/s needed

We urgently need a volunteer to manage the rota for keeping the church open and safe. This should not require much time as a great deal is already in place to limit the time that would be needed.

A massive thank you from the Parish and the wider Catholic community to the two people leading this work who have gone above and beyond to enable safe worship in these difficult times.

Please contact: chair.stmarys@aol.com for more details.
